Without seeing how good or bad the repair work is that will make it hard to tell you how much. Almost anybody can squirt paint on a car. The prep work is the hard part. Even at Macco I'm gonna guess between $500-$2000. It just depends on how much time they will need to fix your repairs and how nice a paint job you want.


Here's another option. Since you have a 14 year old car and investing a lot of money in it isn't what you want to do. Go to the bone yard and look for a G.P. with the same color hood. Hell, $75.00 beats $500-$2000 all day long.

Another cheap option would be to paint your car with PlastiDip. It doesn't require any sanding or prep work and if it looks like shit, you can just peel it off. Check out dipyourcar.com. They have a lot of colors in spray cans you can't get in stores. There are a bunch of tutorial videos on YouTube.
